Isn’t it time to change the name of the school?

Dear Editor,

It’s good that Cabinet has opted to give Avele College one more chance.

I love the school but one thing I know for sure which is the reason behind many of the problems, errors and sins of the past is the name “Avele”. 

I think it’s time to change the name to a more scholarly name or a religious name then this school would be like other best schools in the country. 

I nominate Albert Wendt, Fanaafi, Caroline Fuatai, Meleisea Meleisea. 

These are well educated Samoans, people who have done a lot of research based on our own education. 

If you go on Google and search, you would be surprised to read many historical achievements of their successes in education. 

The name Avele something from the dark past. It is a legendary name that has no connection to the success of education. Just thinking out loud here as we continue to search for answers.

Tuisavalalo B.
